Business Scene for the week of 7/10/18
SUMMER HAS ARRIVED!
Melissa McCoy at Every Bloomin’ Thing tells us that both nurseries are overflowing right now with a beautiful selection of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. They still have a variety of summer veggies you could put in the ground.
Also, be sure to help your garden survive this summer heat by covering your garden beds with a layer of mulch to help keep them moist. It can reduce your watering by 30 percent and be the difference between surviving and thriving this summer. Be sure to visit the gift shop, it is bursting with new summer items. See Every Bloomin’ Thing’s ad in this week’s paper.

LASSEN PLUMAS CONNECTION
Our sales staff has started selling the 2019 edition of the Lassen Plumas Connection telephone directory, the only locally produced — and most cost-effective — phone book that covers all of Lassen and Plumas counties, including parts of Sierra County. For 23 years, we have been providing the region with the most complete and comprehensive residential and business listings in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use format.
We also include cellphone numbers for those who choose to list them — all you have to do is call our newspaper office and provide us with the number since they are not available for purchase from the telephone companies.
Some 42,000 phone books are hand-delivered to homes and businesses throughout the local area, primarily by local school and youth groups. The delivery has become a major fundraiser for them. Since that very first edition in 1995, these groups have earned more than $200,000 for delivering the book.
Our professional advertising consultants are available to design a customized ad package that will market and promote your services in print and online. The entire phone book is posted to our two popular and highly visited websites: lassennews.com and plumasnews.com.
For more information, rates and assistance give Laura Tew, Erika Guisti or Teresa Stalteri a call at 257-5321. We’re here to help with all of your marketing needs. And, we’ll be here tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. Unlike other phone book representatives from out of the area, we’re here working with you throughout the year.
